This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Both Kinfolk Vol.2 and 3 are optimized for first and second generation iPads. They will display in the third generation iPads but not at native resolution. Vol. 4 will be optimized for all iPads.
Kinfolk is a growing community of artists with a shared interest in small gatherings. We recognize that there is something about a table shared by friends, not just a wedding or once-a-year holiday extravaganza, that anchors our relationships and energizes us. We have come together to create Kinfolk as our collaborative way of advocating the natural approach to entertaining that we love.
Every element of Kinfolk – the features, photography, and general aesthetics – are consistent with the way we feel entertaining should be: simple, uncomplicated, and less contrived. Kinfolk is the marriage of our appreciation for art and design and our love for spending time with family and friends.
As a natural extension of our print publication we present Kinfolk Magazine for the iPad. We are very excited to be able to integrate our diverse content--words, images, videos--onto one platform. In addition to all the content offered in the print version we have integrated video features into the articles. We have also added a special "outtakes" section of images that just wouldn't fit in the print version. We also have taken advantage of the iPads native functionality to enhance the viewing experience. Some page layouts allow the user to move, rotate and zoom in on images. Others offer swipable, multi-image galleries. All articles retain the classic sense of simple design you have come to love in the print version. Enjoy.
A couple bugs
This is a great app and has beautiful design and photography. Unfortunately there are a few little bugs that I have experienced while browsing the magazine.
For example: if you change from portrait to landscape (or visa-versa) none of the in-app controls work properly. I have always had to double-tap to bring up the main menu, in order to navigate at all. Sometimes I have even had to quit out of the app in order to regain navigation ability.
Honestly though, I am only rating the current version of the app, not the content. The content gets 5/5 stars. Absolutely beautiful and I love everything that Kinfolk is doing.
I could not be more pleased with this new Kinfolk app. I love everything they are doing with the magazine. Surprisingly the pictures are sill very quality and the content is very easy to read. Of course the actual magazine is a must have, but the app is a great alternative for a good read on the road. I highly recommend Kinfolk Magazine and this app!
This app is what the iPad was made for: beautiful photos, easy-to-use interface, and gorgeous content. I love it.
